Bible concordance for SHIMEA.

3. The third in age of David's brothers, and father of Jonathan who slew Goliath's brother (1Ch 20:7). In the A.V at 1Ch 2:13 the name is even less correctly Anglicized "Shimma." Josephus calls him Samamus (Σάμαμος, Ant. 6:8, 1) and Samna (Σαμᾶ, ibid. 7:12, 2). He is elsewhere (2Sa 13:3, etc.) called SHIMEAH SEE SHIMEAH (q.v.); but SHAMMAH SEE SHAMMAH (q.v.) appears to have been his more correct name (1Sa 16:9). SEE SHIMEATHITE.

4. A son of David and Bathsheba (1Ch 3:5), elsewhere (2Sa 5:14; 1Ch 14:4) called SHAMMUA SEE SHAMMUA (q.v.). SEE DAVID.
